    Brake pad sensors?

    Iv had the mfd telling me to check the brake pads, they are fine and have plenty of meat left on them, so am i right in thinking the sensor is at fault here?

    I did clean and paint the brakes last weekend so i thought i may have disturbed something, but after having the wheels off again and checking the sensors, wiring and connectors i can not find anything wrong?

    Only the front pads have sensors dont they? Is the sensor failing a common problem or have I missed something? Is there a way to determine which side has gone? are they expensive to replace?

    Any help would be great!

    i dont know how you can really test them tbh, i have never hadthis problem on a car.

    At work (oh HGV's) we have a simular system which works by having a contant power to the sensor and when the pads get too low the power goes through the pad disc etc and returns to put the light on the dash to tell you that the pads are low, sometimes it is the sensor that is faulty and to find which one is we just plug a new one in and see if the light goes off.!
